Hi Alex, there was no money left of the original deposit once all the deductions had been made for the repairs & Maint that the Lessor saw fit and together with all the other expenses that I had paid, cleaning of carpets, exit inventory cost, garden restoration, window cleaning etc. However one of the girls that shared the house with my daughter ( there were 3 of them) was adamant that she was not responsible for any restoration whatsoever and demanded that my daughter give her back the full contribution namely 500 pounds that she made towards the total
key deposit of 1938.46 pounds. My daughter had bought a lounge suite on HP and as she was relocating to Abu Dhabi she was not able to take it with her so one of her friends( who was also in touch with Mercy the girl demanding her full share of the key deposit back) offered to take over the furniture and the instalments thereon. My daughter gave her friend permission to remove the furniture from storage, but once it arrived at her friends flat the friend realised that it was too cumbersome for her small flat and passed it onto Mercy who told the friend not to worry she would take over the instalments due. However, once she took possession of the furniture my daughter received a mail from her saying, ha ha I have your furniture and I will not be paying the instalments on it in lieu of the deposit of 500 pounds that you owe me.
